Pennies for Patients
Pennies for Patients is an annual fundraising event held at BPS each year starting the week after Spring Break.

Pennies for Patients is a service-learning program that gives students the unique experience of working together to help raise awareness and funds in honor of thousands of children and adults fighting against blood cancers!

We are asking that everyone students, faculty, parents and friends at BPS to join in this effort of raising awareness and collecting funds to benefit the mission of LLS: to find cures for blood cancers and to improve the quality of life for patient and their families.

Since 1994, BPS has collected and donated over $297,915.00 to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  In 2018, over 460 BPS students collected $8055.00!   F

Pennies for Patients will help teach your child about personal achievement and teamwork, but ultimately demonstrates the meaning of giving to help others.

Heart Maze
One of the most anticipated events at BPS is the Heartmaze. This activity takes place in February, which is American Heart Month. The Heartmaze is a giant obstacle course where the students act as blood cells making their way through all of the chambers of the heart and throughout the rest of the body. Simulating the continuous blood flow throughout the body, students complete the Heartmaze several times during PE class, which is a great heart-healthy exercise. Also during the week of the Heartmaze, students learn many different facts about the heart and how it functions, as well as ways to maintain a healthy heart throughout the rest of their lives.
